On August 1st, I am seeting off from Nottingham train station and running towards Skegness. I am giving myself four days to run the 90-ish miles, but I'm beginning to feel really nervous!

"Why on earth?!" you might ask. It's in the name of art! Find out more about the exhibition <a href="">here</a>

and read about my build up <a href="">on my blog</a>

Supporters welcome to wave us off from Nottingham and welcome us to Skeggy!

Thats a hell of a challenge Princess. Good luck and Im sure youll be fine.
24/07/2006 at 12:32
I take it youre getting a lift home though?
24/07/2006 at 12:33
Ah, thanks Stoxy! I've got Mr AP on his bike carrying the tent, and he's really supportive, thank goodness!

Yes, getting the train back apropriately (the run is along the journey of the railway line)

I shall have my feet up at that point!

wow, good luck a princess. that's a pretty tough challange!
24/07/2006 at 12:38
Thanks SDW. I posted tentatively because there are probably folks on here who do that crazy distance all the time, but it's BIG for me anyway!

Its all relative anyway princess. To some people four miles is a long way. The thing about this forum is we're all equal on here even if we do post our times and stuff we're all runners, fast slow, long short. And I get a lot of support from here as well as a bit of a laugh!

:) true, true.
24/07/2006 at 13:45
wow, what an awesome challenge! good luck and look forward to hearing how you get on

Thanks Clairster! I will put a full report on my blog, probably when I get back

excellent, although i have no idea where any of these places are!! had a brief look through your blog. how long did it take you to get over recovery wasnt too bad!

Hi Clairster

I was amazed at my recovery - it was my first marathon and I'd heard all about walking backwards downstairs, but I was fine! The morning after I was a bit wooden-legged, but was itching to get out running again pretty quickly. I'm hoping this is the case next week ;¬)

The run is through Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire, I'm sure there must be some RW folks who are from round there...

I'm going to be on the local ITV news, on the local BBC radio breakfast show and in local papers too, for anyone who is round there!

Hi AP,

Thats pretty good recovery. I was worse after london and struggled with stairs but after Edinburgh I was fine (ish) just a bit tired. I did a 10K a couple of weeks after tho and was definitely still feeling it in my legs...every slight incline caused me to almost grind to a halt! What sort of training have you done for this adventure?
